Drill Down Choropleth - Data Colors reset on each filter

When using the Drill Down Choropleth visual with a Legend, you can set Data Colors in the normal manner.  However (unlike most visuals) these dont "stick" - every time the visual is filtered it re-assigns colors from the default palette.


You can repro this behaviour using the sample PBIX file provided with the visual.  From the page: Choropleth with Legend, go to the Visual Level Filters and filter the Party field, e.g. select B and D.  You can also try using the Format / Data Colors property to set a specific color, then change the filter and watch it reset to the default palette.


For my scenario, each value in the Legend field should show in a specific colour, regardless of filtering.  This is achieveable with other visuals e.g. TreeMap.  Please fix this aspect of an otherwise outstanding Custom Visual.

FWIW, any help with this issue will contribute in a small part to literally saving the planet – my use of this visual is to help the people running this project:

Hi - did you get a resolution on this issue?  I'm having the same trouble now.

@lilyblue01 - nope, sadly the development on this visual appears to have stopped - seemingly it fell in a hole between Microsoft and the original developers Gramener.


I've given up and moved those projects to the Mapbox Custom Visual. While Mapbox is already a much better map generally, it also currently suffers from the same issue. However there is a much more active development effort behind Mapbox so we have some hope of it being resolved ... soon ...
